Final Fantasy XII's Gambit system seems unchanged in Zodiac Age, and that's perfectly okay

While Final Fantasy XII's gambit system (read: ability to assign AI tasks with provisos) wasn't perfect, it was ahead of its time, especially for a console RPG. Obnoxious marketing speak aside in the trailer, it does a decent job of explain...   read

Review: NieR: Automata - 3C3C1D119440927

Anyone who has spoken with me in the past couple of months would know of my absolute adoration for NieR: Automata. In fact, it’s very likely that I’ve become unhealthily obsessed with it. To say that I regard it to be one of the...   read
